Certified Production Technician (CPT)

CPT classes in Connecticut

Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) is the gold standard for certification of front-line manufacturing and logistics workers and offers the only two credentials in those industries which have been ANSI accredited under ISO Standard 17024. MSSC’s standards-based, industry-led national programs offer workers and students an opportunity to document their skills and knowledge, allow educators and training providers to meet the needs of the regional workforce and local industry, and provide employers with a pipeline of potential employees with a standardized set of core competencies.

Our Training Program

The CPT Program is comprised of four modules:
Module 1: Safety
Module 2: Quality Practices and Measurement
These modules are delivered in a 15-week hybrid learning format.

Module 3: Manufacturing Process and Production
Module 4: Maintenance Awareness
